Input Sought on Pilot Experience Near Solar Facilities

A research agency is conducting a survey for the FAA and the Airport Cooperative Research Program on pilot experience with solar energy facilities at airports. Airports with these facilities include Bagdad, Phoenix Sky Harbor International, and Ernest A. Love Field in Arizona; Meadows Field, Bob Hope, Fresno Yosemite International, Long Beach, Metropolitan Oakland International, Redding Municipal, San Francisco International, and Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International in California; and Hilo International, Kahului, Kona International at Keahole, and Lihue in Hawaii. Pilots’ anonymous responses will support guidance on best practices for aviation safety associated with planning, developing, and constructing energy production and transmission technologies at and around airports.
